BRUNSWICK, GA (June 22, 2022) – Add a little “green” to red, white and blue festivities this Independence Day holiday and help keep the Golden Isles clean, green and beautiful by joining one of THREE Keep Golden Isles Beautiful July 5th cleanups on St. Simons Island and in Brunswick.

  • SSI - Old Coast Guard Station beach crossover, July 5th, 8AM

  • SSI - Pier/Village (meet at Village Inn and Pub), July 5th, 8AM

  • BWK - Mary Ross Park, July 5th, 8AM

Sponsored by Yamaha RIGHTWATERS, the beach sweep is hosted by the Savannah Bee Company, the Pier/Village Cleanup is hosted by Rahab’s Rope and Village Inn and Pub, and the Mary Ross Park cleanup is hosted by the Brunswick Downtown Development Authority.


Volunteers meet at one of the three designated locations to sign in and receive cleanup supplies. FREE VOLUNTEER T-SHIRTS AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.


Volunteers will concentrate on possible litter left over from Fourth of July nighttime merry-making. “While fireworks are prohibited on Glynn County beaches, volunteers will be prepared to remove even the smallest pieces of fireworks debris, preventing possible marine debris that can be harmful to marine life,” said KGIB executive director Lea King-Badyna. “This year, we’ll expand our efforts to assist County staff in the Pier/Village area of St. Simons, and City staff at downtown Brunswick’s Mary Ross Park as well. We really need volunteers in all three locations.”


Several major public beach access points and beach parking lots will also be tackled in the effort. All ages and abilities are welcome to participate.
